L.A. Psychiatrist Will Be Honored

Dr. Timothy Hayes, a Los Angeles psychiatrist, is one of seven activists nationwide who will be honored with the Broad Street Pump Award from Physicians for Social Responsibility at the group’s national meeting Saturday in Palo Alto.

Hayes, a founding member of the Los Angeles chapter of PSR, was medical/technical adviser to the television drama, “The Day After,” and the feature film, “Testament.”

The award derives its name from the water pump that was identified by a physician in 19th-Century London as the source of the outbreak of cholera in that city.
